Dr. Kayce Mobley, Associate Professor of Political Science in the Department of History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences at Pittsburg State University, will present "Thucydides in Dublin, 1916: Two Tales of Proportionality and International Relations".

Thucydides’ analysis of events in The History of the Peloponnesian War is “an everlasting possession,” and many international relations theorists deem him a forefather of the field. How can his analysis apply to a modern state? This paper studies the concept of proportionality by comparing Thucydides’ account of the uprising in Mytilene, 428-427 BCE with Ireland’s Easter Rising in 1916 CE.

This event is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by the Department of History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences.  For additional information, contact Dr. Barbara Bonnekessen at bbonnekessen@pittstate.edu.
